If anybody can identify th« widow in the following paragraph dated from Chi cago the loth, lie is more fortunate than the FitKK I't.Kss: A widow who gave her name as Mrs. Simpson came into the un ion depot over the Chicago. Iturlingion and Quincy road from Pierre, s. D„ with eight children. They all rode on one ticket, lliut was the one the mother had bought for herself. The entire union de pot force was laughing about it. The widow had changed roads several times. Each time she mot a new conductor a row ensued, but she came out victorious ev ery time. The children were all small. The railway rules allow children under six years of ago to ride free. "Are they all your children'."' the conductor would ask. "Yes, sir, they are. Don't tlicy look like nte'.'" "Well, 1 can't carry all of them free. Some of them are over six years old." '"Why, there are two pairs of twins in among them," she would ex ultingly exclaim. Then all the passengers would laugh, and the entire dolegatlou got their little feet on the one ticket and rode safely through. Monday night at about 7:110 a shot was lired in front of Jones' saloon on Dakota avenue. It struck the big plate glass window on the north frontof Rose's hard ware store, shivering It. Two men hap pened to be standing in the store within a few feet of the glass and directly under where the bullet struck. A crowd quickly collected in front of the saloon, and sev eral men jumped into a wagon and drove off without being identified, and there is no doubt but thatonnof them was the cul prit. It is tho general opinion among citizens tliat there is getting to Be a great deal more of this promiscuous shooting going on than is couducivo to public safety and order, and thtlt a stop should bo put itinstanter. The next man who is caught flourishing a gun, whether or no he be a wooly cowboy from the range or a rounder who wants to demonstrate his damphoolery, should be handled se vcrely. It lias gone to far already, and Pierre will soon have a harder reputation than she had in the early eighties. Sunday a party of cowboys came to town on their bronchos, and Henry I'fot euhiiuer. chief of police, judging that tliev were a little too frolicsome, went up to the party and selecting one of them as an example told him to come along. The fellow entered a protest against going to the cooler, whereupon Henry covered hint with a sliootin'-iroti. telling him that lie was in danger of losing the lop of his cranium if lie id n't. keep step, or words to that effect, I'tider this form of persua sion ni'in "hit the irail" alongside, of Henry. When they were about half way up the hill the prisoner suddenly ex claimed. "whcie's my bottle?" This query so distracted Henry that the other dug his hand into his pocket for the bot tle,but broughtnut a revolver instead, lie then gave orders to Henry to make hlm s.iif scarce, which the latt did, and the fellow returned to his crowd. The moral of this is not to let a man get the drop on you while holding out false promises of a bottle. Judge Kuller and A. S. Carpenter, his stenographer, arrived Monday night, and the November term of circuit court op ened Tuesday. The call of the calendar developed the following cases ready for ti ial lie lirst day. the others mostly ing on later in tlis term: ISiimcom Chamberlain -Owen Lumber company, a corpora'i'in. vs. Wil liard I.

"A Model Husband,'' played in the rink last night, was greeted by a packed house, and there was not a person there but that was entirely satisfied with his entertain ment. The audience was kept in a con tinual roar by the funny parts in tiie com edy, and while John Dillon was certainly the crowning achievement of humor, his support could not very well have been better. This is the second visit of Mr. Dillon to I'ierre, and if he ever makes a third there will not be a hall in the en large enough to accommodate those who wish to hear him. l'ort I'ierre was the victim of au Indian hoax last week. Two cowboys were on a lark up Had river. One was named Jim Quiun and the other called Reddv. Ruddy came to town and reported that Qtiiun hud been made away with by some redskins living up the valley, and lhat be had barely escaped with liis life.
